A New Way to Repair Bone Fractures

University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Centre has been working busily developing a new method for repairing bone fractures. The team of researchers have concocted a “fracture putty” that dramatically decreases healing time by stimulating rapid bone formation. So far they have demonstrated accelerated healing in sheep and mice, in the order of a few weeks.

While they are hoping this will have enormous impact in the battlefield going forward, it is obvious that the benefits extend well beyond that. It is their hope that this fracture putty, combined with other parallel projects of fracture repair will improve healing and rehabilitation. 

Science. Is. Amazing.
